The pie bird may be old-fashioned, but this time-honored baker's tool has turned out countless delicious pies over the course of centuries. The hollow pie bird vents steam from the filling as it cooks, preventing the contents from boiling over. Arches on the bottom redirect excess moisture to keep the bottom crust from becoming soggy. The top crust will be held in place, and your oven will be free of spills. This pie bird is constructed from durable stoneware that is sure to last as long as you still have a use for it. An enamel finish covers the stoneware inside and out and keeps it safe, looking good and easier to clean. This dish is safe to use in the oven, up to 500 degrees F. Available in a variety of colors to match your kitchen.
